How A New Unit At UWM Is Working To Make Manufacturing More Efficient

All of us know the power of the internet to connect people across the world. But there is another type of internet that is designed to optimize the way millions of machines operate. It’s called the Industrial Internet of Things. At UWM there is a new unit on campus working with dozens of companies to learn how the Internet of Things can make manufacturing more efficient and productive. The Connected Systems Institute recently opened its doors and its executive director, Mary Bunzel is our guest today. Also joining us on this edition of UWM Today is Jennifer Abele, Senior executive director of Strategic Partnerships for UWM.  Both have been instrumental in creating the Connected Systems Institute.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
